In general, everyone who visits here notices a special “local” aura. Space. How else? Thus, the Soyuz MS manned transport spacecraft simulator complex provides training for cosmonauts in regular and emergency modes of operation of onboard systems. Another complex – the Russian segment of the International Space Station – is designed not only to develop skills in the operation of its systems and payload, but also to conduct “multi-segment” operations, as well as to ensure the safety of the joint crew. and the survival of the ISS. There are several simulators here at once: a service module, a functional load block and a science laboratory module.

One of the “instances” of training cosmonauts is a centrifuge. Approved? Consider already in orbit

Astronauts practice their weightlessness skills in the hydrolab. But, perhaps, one of the most serious “cases” of training astronauts is a centrifuge. As they say: “Did it pass? Consider, one foot is already in orbit.” There are two of them in the center: with a seven-meter and eighteen “shoulder”. The latter, weighing three hundred tons, is the largest in Europe. Within a few seconds, they develop an overload of up to 8 units. The limit is thirty. But this is, however, for test equipment.

As you know, the Scientific and Technical Council of Roscosmos approved the extension of the operation of the Russian segment of the ISS until 2028. (Before it was about 2024 inclusive). The technical conditions of the Russian segment of the station, measures to extend its service life, medical support issues and the expansion of the scientific and applied research program were discussed. It was reported that based on the results of the NTS, Roskosmos would prepare documents for submitting an application to the Russian government.

Commenting on the decision to extend the life of the Russian ISS segment, Vladimir Solovyov, General Designer of Manned Space Complexes and Systems, noted that the Russian ISS segment has taken itself very seriously over the past two years, a large number of repairs and adaptations have been carried out. Many different methods have been devised to continue the flight of the Russian segment of the ISS and increase the life of onboard systems.


At the CTC, Deputy Prime Minister Denis Manturov was accompanied by Director General of Roscosmos Yury Borisov and State Duma deputy Hero of the Soviet Union Valentina Tereshkova. Valentina Vladimirovna, the world’s first female cosmonaut and the only woman in the world to make a solo space flight, has her birthday today. Congratulations from the bottom of our hearts!
